WHOA. Just whoa.

Ok, I live in Massachusetts, and let me tell you, it's wicked hard to make enough money to survive up here. Yeah, it's like that everywhere, but it's especially difficult here. Also, taxes are really high, and houses cost a ton. Let's not forget about owning a car and baying over 3.30 for gas. One more thing, what about the winter? Do you even know how much it costs to heat your home? Yikes.

Overall, I'd say no. Flat-out NO.

Okay, first off the question was not how difficult it is to live in MA when your 17. it is CAN you move out at 17. From the information i have looked up on this (and i am 18 by the way) i have found that when you are 17 and a half you are legally independent and you can move out with parents permission. you CANNOT be legally emancipated until you are 18 in massachusetts, but you can move out with your guardians permission at 17 i would say, overall. hope this helps :)
